New Android and Windows Smartphones by Prestigio

Let’s not start a debate about Android vs Windows mobile operating platforms. Both are good. The slick Android platform is the most popular by far and the new stylish Windows 8.1 mobile platform can match Android in a number of ways.

There are about 1,3 billion apps available for Android and around a quarter of a million for Windows. For games and other fun apps, Android is the way to go. If just calling and texting is your thing, Windows integrates seamlessly with Outlook, Facebook and other accounts.

If you’re a cash rather than contract smartphone user then the price might be the decision maker. And here’s the crunch: top famous brand smartphones cost twice as much as a similarly featured Prestigio smartphone, which also operates on the latest Android (JellyBean, KitKat or Lolly) or Windows (8.1) platform, also runs on either a dual, quad or octa core processor, and, depending on the model, also has an HD IPS OGS screen with DragonTrail protection. 

Starting at R1 099 (for the Prestigio MultiPhone 3350 DUO) and maxing at R3 969 for the Prestigio MultiPhone 7600 DUO, these phones are excellent value for money and makes an ideal gift (even to oneself).

The 7600 DUO, for instance, has a 6″ HD screen, 1.5Ghz Quad Core CPU, 4GB memory, 1GB RAM, 8MP front camera and 15MP main camera. It also features NFC (Near Field Communication) technology and dual SIM usage.
